A Magnesia Litera Award-winning collection of eight short stories and novellas by the young writer and Jiří Orten Award winner, Marek Šindelka. Loneliness of a couple, which doesn’t communicate but still speaks, emanates from the title novella named after the popular TV news catchphrase. An exquisitely written text about love, sex, disappointment and helplessness. The original Czech edition won the 2012 Magnesia Litera Award for prose and was nominated for the Josef Škvorecký Prize.

Praise

“The short stories from the book Stay Tuned repeat the single – or more precisely dual – motif of loneliness and a crisis of communication. Throughout the book these themes complement, offer a variation on or hold up a contrasting mirror to each other, and the texts also captivate the reader through the method of storytelling, the use of language. Šindelka places a great deal of importance on the rhythm with which the story unfolds.”

—Vojtěch Staněk, A2
